crusade for justice. well in two thousand and two i was raped by united states military servicemen and at that time i thought that perhaps i was the only person who was a victim and then i i did so much research and i have i have this here before me is the list of nine hundred forty five the this is only the rape cases alone that have happened since the one nine hundred forty s. and the list you can see is quite extensive here they're happening like every every month or every couple of weeks and i actually put this list. and i watch it you can see it's not that large but you can see i've written on on some sheets here and what is what is in other words goes on it's all laid out a lot of this is enough this would be these a list of just the right crimes and our . and that would probably my would probably be equivalent to a twenty four store story building so how many of these. investigated properly do
6:19 am
you believe i mean what happened in new york or use properly well say for example since the nine hundred fifty s. there's been about two hundred thousand crimes and accidents that have been caused by united states military service men. and in my case. you know nobody wanted to help me nobody wanted to listen and the united states military has claimed and has blatantly told the entire world that they are zero tolerance to rape cases. and they're helping rape victims but that is completely the opposite they have not helped me at all. israeli defense forces have resumed firing at gaza shortly after rockets were fired into southern israel both sides had just agreed a new five day cease fire hours before the existing truce was due to expire a middle east correspondent policy or looks at how the new shelling puts the shaky

6:21 am
a five day cease fire and it's hoped that this time will be used so that they can be a permanent deal reached between the sides what we are hearing from the teams in cairo is that there has been significant progress but that there are still outstanding issues regarding the lifting of the siege in gaza regarding security arrangements and also reconstruction efforts inside the gaza strip where news from around the world and brazil presidential candidate of the arctic our bus has died in a plane crash along with four other passengers and two pilots the private jet came down in bad weather and our residential area in the port city of sound us on the ground six people including two children were injured and several buildings were destroyed brazil's president has declared three days of national mourning and canceled campaign events congress was running third in opinion polls for the election which takes place in a. hospital in the u.s. state of nebraska has been flooded after

6:23 am
consulting companies who want to steer clear of violations violations can be very costly these days for example french bank b.n.p. recently agreed to pay an almost nine billion dollars fine for violating u.s. sanctions by processing bans transactions involving sudan iran and cuba deutsche bank a g.'s under investigation for potential violations of u.s. sanctions the bank now plans to hire about five hundred compliance risk and technology employees in the u.s. h.s.b.c. which two years ago agreed to pay almost two billion dollars to settle anti money laundering probes in the u.s. now has at least seven former obama administration treasury officials working on financial crime or sanctions related issues is now among the most active banks hiring from the government obviously private sector pays more by the way we reached out to a number of former treasury employees so now work at major corporations they either
